Working towards the Sustainable Development Goals for children in China
Sustainable Development Goals Postcards
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are a UN initiative, formally adopted by Member States at the UN General Assembly on 25 September 2015. The SDGs include 17 Goals and 169 targets over a period of 15 years (from 2016-2030), with the aim to address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
This series of postcards focuses on 10 SDG goals and corresponding indicators that most impact children, as identified by UNICEF. When relevant statistics were not available, proxy indicators were used. Of the 10 SDGs for children, four SDGs do not have publicly available data for relevant indicators. These are: SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).
